We’ve been traveling with the fluffies a lot recently so I’ve become pretty proficient at getting everything packed. For awhile, I needed a list to ensure that I didn’t miss anything so I created this handy infographic! [Read more…] about Dog Friendly Travel
I think we are.
This weekend we undertook an extreme challenge: traveling from Montana to Virginia with both dogs.
According to Google Maps, the trip should take approximately 30 hours. Well, we all know how that goes. Once you factor in traffic and stops long enough for the pups to stretch their legs, several hours get tacked on.
I was a bit worried about how the dogs were going to handle the long drive. They love being in the car, but can anyone like being in the car for two days straight? I wasn’t sure.
Aside from Mauja throwing up all over the hotel room (why we always bring cleaning products!), we made it through without any major issues. For the most part, they just napped the day away. We brought plenty of new toys and time-consuming treats to keep them occupied, but they were content to snooze away.
We made frequent stops where Nick and I would take turns running around with them to ensure their legs got a good stretch. We also made sure to have the windows open when they were awake. The new smells kept them very entertained!
Overall, I could not be more pleased with how the trip to the east coast went. Paws crossed that the trip itself and the drive back go just as well!
Check back over the week to see all of our adventures!
